Level 2 cut protection, comfort and dexterity
Brussels, 29 October 2010. Ansell Healthcare (www.ansell.eu), a global leader in barrier protective solutions, introduces the HyFlex® 11-502, a glove intended for light assembly tasks. It is a silicone-free and knitted dipped light-weight glove offering higher levels of cut protection than the popular HyFlex® 11-800/11-801 gloves. Besides enhanced cut protection, it provides the same superior comfort, durability and dexterity protection when handling small edged pieces.
HyFlex® 11-502 is aimed at users of HyFlex® 11-800/11-801 gloves looking for level 2 cut protection without sacrificing comfort or dexterity. This seamless, 15-gauge glove is a practical solution ideal for dry or slightly oily applications.
The secret to the enhanced cut protection lies in the knit: nylon mixed with Dyneema® fiber for flexible cut resistance. The palm of the glove is dipped in foam nitrile for extra durability and grip.
Foam nitrile coating for multiple protection
The coating is composed of breathable foam nitrile (NBR), and contains no natural rubber latex proteins, which means there is no risk of Type I allergies for the worker. The so-called NBR foam coating improves grip and dexterity on slightly oily objects.
Suitable for a wide range of assembly tasks
The HyFlex® 11-502 is particularly well suited for the automotive, metal fabrication, machinery & equipment, building & construction and maintenance industries. Silicone-free, the gloves are paint-job compatible. Their anti-static qualities make them suitable for specialised assembly jobs.
Available in a wide range of sizes from extra small (6) to extra large (11), the new HyFlex® 11-502 will fit all workers carrying out general assembly and handling tasks. Its excellent washability ensures prolonged lifetime for this premium quality glove.
